Sundays on Broadway co-curators Owen Prum and Weis present an evening of video and performances by Emily Coates, Emmanuèle Phuon, Iréne Hultman & Yvonne Rainer, Tess Dworman, Savannah Lyons Anthony, and video by CW.

Emily Coates, Emmanuèle Phuon, Irene Hultman, and Yvonne Rainer: Every morning for the last four years, Rainer has consigned her dreams to a journal. The artists have picked a handful as a point of departure to reflect on the nature of dreams, dance, creativity, and memory. They are very early in the process and excited to share the seeds of their conversation and choreography to find out where it will go next.

Tess Dworman continues her investigation into persona and the solo improvisational form with this stark inhibition of character and an inventory of feeling inside the power play between performer and audience.

Savannah Lyons Anthony will present a solo. Once a pig always a pig.

CW will show an excerpt of archival footage she shot back in the day.
